Today at jury duty I overheard/spotted something too priceless not to share -- A woman sitting in the jury waiting room reading Oedipus aloud to her teenage son. Ahhhh! Did the cautionary elements of the story totally escape her? Was she a seventh grade teacher trying to reinforce the message of the story? Yikes!
Now off we go to the Festival of Finishing!
Today we have a very manly kimono, modeled by the ever cooperative Cocoa Bear.
Here’s a bear-free shot so you can see the crochet neckline and stripe detail.
True, it’s not technically a kimono, not by a long shot, but the design was inspired by this little sweater…
The Mason Dixon baby kimono I knit for Baby Gleek, who will be joining us verrrrry soon.
For the Baby Gleek Kimono and the modified Manly Kimono I used the same yarn, Lily Elite Cotton, knit on #7 needles. To create the modified Manly Kimono I just followed the Mason Dixon directions, stopping at the bottom of the V on each side (21 stitches), then joining the two sides together to create a one-piece front.
